Beautiful resort, beach and pools

Beautiful resort, beach and pools. Well manicured grounds and polite and helpful wait staff. The Reserve is pretty far from the main hotel and beach so be prepared to get a golf cart ride everywhere unless you want to walk about 15 minutes back to your room. The rooms/suites are very dimly lit and food/drinks are not always restocked by the cleaning staff. Food is OK, but definitely not great. If staying at this resort, I would highly recommend paying extra and eating at the Palazzo for dinner. The food and premium drinks there are well worth the cost.

Great Value, Great Service

This is a lovely resort with well kept grounds, pool, beach, and accommodations. We love The Reserve because it never feels crowded. We have been there in June and September. All service staff at The Reserve made us feel very special, every day! If you want to feel pampered, this is the place to stay.

Stay at the main resort instead

This review is strictly for my 1 week stay at the Reserve at Paradisus Palma Real and not the main Paradisus Palma Real resort by the ocean. For those who don’t know, the Reserve is on the same huge property as the main resort but is located about half a mile away. It is an easy walk or golf cart ride back and forth but they both take some time. The suite I was in was fantastic and the grounds and the pool were wonderful. However, the following is why I am only giving it 3 stars. First like I just said, it is half a mile from the beach vs being right on it. Second, it only has two dinner restaurants and a buffet. Therefore we ended up eating most of our lunch and dinner meals down at the main resort. Additionally, the pool-side snack grill was closed the entire time we were there so nothing to eat or snack on in the late afternoon. Third, the only evening entertainment is the occasional “lounge singer” (my term) who most of the time seemed to be singing to no one. Once again we had to go down to the main resort for the real evening entertainment and show. Finally, the place is simply not fun (in my opinion). They play new age relaxation/meditation music during the days and have no real fun activities for adults other than perhaps a few yoga events. Why not play some upbeat music by the pool during the day and maybe put a ping pong table (or two), or basketball shoot, or shuffleboard, or have some fun adult games/activities so there is more to do during the days than just sit at the pool? A tropical colorful drink-of-the-day might also add some fun. Bottom line, why pay more to be at the Reserve and just sit at a pool when it doesn’t have the beach, fun atmosphere, restaurants, or entertainment that you get at the main resort by the ocean. Had I been rating the Paradisus Palma Real and not the Reserve, I probably would have given it at least 4.5 stars. Of note, the food at both resorts was great and the best I have had at an all-inclusive resort. Additionally, DO NOT take the excursion to Santo Domingo. Despite being told it takes about 2 hours to get there, it actually took over 3 hours and involved 3 different busses. Once there it was fine but then took another 2.5 hours to get back. Don’t waste your precious time with over 6 hours of bus riding just to see a few sites.

Beautiful Resort

This resort has a sister resort, The Paradisus Palma Real, which you are given full access too. We spent most of our time there as that is where most of the restaurants were located as well as direct access to the beach. Both locations were beautiful and great staff. We loved all our meals there and the service was great every where. Went to the spa and it was very relaxing. There were a lot of families with young kids there, if you want to stay away from that neither resort would be for you. Next time we will do adults only.

What's to Love

Chillaxing on Bavaro Beach, named by UNESCO one of the top beaches in the world.

The posh, trendy decor that makes all guests feel nothing shy of glamorous.

The modern, swank rooms are humongous and have Jacuzzis.

It's an epic family-friendly resort with a children's swimming pool and toddlers' splash pool.

The ginormous, spellbinding spa with extensive treatments to please your soul (ahhh).

Mother Nature showing off at the breath-stealing Eco Garden where tomatoes, okra and bananas grow.

Fancying a full day of unlimited free greens fees at Cocotal Golf Course. Cart fees apply.
